AMCC PEAK PERFORMERS
PITTSBURGH, PA – After the winter and spring sport season Team Peak Performer champions were announced, Hilbert College officially dominated the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference’s academic championships during the 2012-13 year. Seven of Hilbert’s eleven teams who participate in AMCC championships earned the highest cumulative grade point average at the conclusion of the academic term they competed in.
This spring, the women’s basketball (3.47) and softball (3.48) teams along with the men’s volleyball team (3.23) joined the Hawks men’s and women’s cross country, golf and women’s soccer teams who were announced after the fall 2012 semester.
Thanks to the athletic department’s Athlete Academic Monitoring Program (AAMP), which was introduced in January 2011, the Hawk athletes have responded in positive ways. AAMP was designed to help a struggling student-athlete reach his/her full potential in the classroom. Kelly Starchok, the recipient of the NCAA Women and Minority Grant Hilbert College received in June 2011, directs the program.
“A new standard was set which helps our student-athletes reach their educational potential and achieve their academic goals,” stated Starchok. She continued “It is extremely exciting to see our student-athletes take responsibility of their own learning and to see them grow personally as academically well-rounded individuals. I am proud of our student-athletes, our coaches, and the athletic department staff as well as the support provided by the Academic Services Center in their commitment to the program.”
